    Aravaan Movie Review:

    300 or 400 years old stories were shown for few minutes in 7 am Arivu, Dasavatharam and Ayirathil aruvan..Many of us felt that it would have been better if 7am arivu Bodhi dharman history and Dasavartharam 12th century scenes were taken as full movie instead of adding commercial items..Here comes, Aravaan which is about THIEVES history who lived in 18th Century...

    21-12-12 - End of the World according to Mayan Prediction - This is the hottest business in the world as of now...Why was Mayan's given much importance than other civilizations? Would you believe that Mayan's played football, they had images of rockets, tube lights, crystal skulls which can't be made with our latest LASER technology, their observatory dome,etc

    The reason why I am talking about Mayan's here is, though they were extremely talented, few people just talked about ONE huge BAD HABIT which they had...They use to provide SCAPE HUMAN (U must have heard about Scape Goat where Goat was provided to God, SCAPE HUMAN is providing HUMAN to GOD for praying)...

    SCAPE HUMAN..This is the CONCEPT of the movie Aravaan...Hero was made as SCAPE HUMAN for the mistake done by his village people...Couldn't believe it..This was a regular custom followed by lots of people including Indians till 18th Century..British made a law to STOP it...Director is requesting the countries to stop HANGING the CRIMINALS by informing us about this SCAPE HUMAN thing...HUGE MESSAGE TO OUR SOCIETY...But, he has made the story in such a way that it doesn't look like PREACHING like few of the movies which got released recently....Indeed, he has made us get involved in each and every scene which goes for nearly 3 hours..

    All the actors have done a great job especially PASUPATHI, the most talented actor of Tamil cinema has come back after long time and given a MIND BLOWING performance after Veyil ,Virumandi...Aadhi, this will be a great stepping stone for him...

    First half of the movie takes his time leisurely to get into the story..Indeed, Interval arrives when the ACTUAL story begins..Though most of the First half was interesting, it was little dragging...

    Vasantha Balan movie without a TRAGEDY is impossible...But, in this movie, Tragedy comes at an END and it is the appropriate one for this movies too like his earlier movies - Veyil and Angadi Theru...

    Overall, Araavan is an EPIC movie ...Mile stone for Tamil Cinema, may get International Awards but at the same time, will be loved by MOVIE LOVERS...A Truly Different Movie..
